Mastery We love the dangerous cliffs of mountains, winding roads and rivers; jagged canyons and waterfalls seem most beautiful. We love the shadow of a cloud obstructing the sun and watch both the cloud and its cheerful shadow. There is something perfect to be found in the imperfect: the law keeps balance through the juxtaposition of beauty, which gains perfection through nurtured imperfection. Everything that looks too perfect is not perfect: it is too perfect to be perfect—real perfection...

William Butler Yeats To Helen Vendler To accomplish the simplicity Of words that learned how to dance Without much support from a dancer Who learned the steps of deserved living From the vigor of his dancing mind. Is it a dance or the dancer? Is it to live or to be lived? It was not the dancer, but the dancing; It was not the life, but the living mind; The truth of living found in dancing. If he had chosen only to live, The dance would have been much less lively. It was the dancer who followed...

Chance And then, the days became longer. Although all days are equally long regardless of the season, some days are long not only seasonally but by rewards they offer. These were such days—generous in sunshine and generous in offerings springing from the trees, from the streets showered by sunrays and dancing shadows, from beaches, from the faces of people. On one of these days, I met her. Serenity bloomed in the outer place and inside my head I felt some knowledge, some understanding, that...

Evening by the Lake That evening reminded me of a story imagined long ago, not so much in words as in visions of a house near the lake, with gardens not as precisely made as the French ones, yet more elegant. These visions were reoccurring from time to time and I didn't know if they reflected some kind of lost reality, future bliss, or simply daily dreams. For years I tried to suppress them, thinking they could be distractions in the real world. Yet I tried to cherish them, because I never...

Reality How comfortable if, from a position of power, we think, although comfort is the most dangerous thing—it confuses value with power, vision with illusion, (confessions don't help) and that is how a mistake is born. We know much about people and wars—or we think we do; and despite all these words we know, something terrible always happens to remind us of our blindness. It is not a matter of knowledge, it is not a matter of power, but rather a powerful eye blind before the obvious,...

ALIENS I Aliens from a planet attacked aliens on another. They bombed and blasted cities and countries, burned and killed the other aliens. Aliens kill aliens so easily. Then they built a new alien civilization on the old aliens' planet. But as with the plants, not all climates are the same and not all plants grow on every planet, so the new civilization disintegrated slowly thanks to famines, plagues, tsunamis, volcanoes; wars that emerged among new countries, new cities that bombed and...

SPECIAL FEELING To feel without knowing And know by feeling; To say it without words And know without knowing. To be silently eloquent And ask without a question, To get the answer anyway And name it with a smile. To know it by a smile And pronounce it in the silence, To say it without saying- That's when you know it. To feel it is to know it Not to name it is to glorify it- To do it for a smile And not expect any other reward. To walk, dance and fly Feel the epiphany of oblivion; To be one...

WALT WHITMAN "Captain, our captain," We take your hand, Find your footsteps on the streets Of Chicago, New York, San Francisco. Your spirit grows from the grassy fields, Appearing on the horizon As a light-beam signaling America To remind her of her roots.

"Krugovanje" is the book which I thoroughly enjoyed. Many fine little poems. -Charles Simic Specifičan, iznenađujuće originalan, izvan tokova kolektivno negovanih senzibiliteta i pomodnih trendova, Stojanović je izrazit primer stvaralačkog individualizma u generaciji koja je taj individualizam najmanje negovala. Zato je njegova knjiga "Krugovanje" ne samo primer izrazitog pesničkog dometa, koji predstavlja snažan prilog i podsticaj izuzetno značajnom toku našeg...

Dejan Stojanović rođen je 1959. godine u Peći. Od 1990. zivi u SAD, i dopisnik je "Pogleda" iz Čikaga.

U zborniku te manifestacije, Stojanović je zastupljen sa dve svoje pesme: "Uspon varvarina" i "Ako jesam", koje se nalaze i u knjizi pesama "Krugovanje 1978-1987" koja predstavlja...

Dejan Stojanovic's conversations with Saul Bellow, Charles Simic, Steve Tesic . . . Knjiga novinskih tekstova i intervjua Dejana Stojanovića nastala je početkom devedesetih. Sklon istraživanju, autor ove knjige, koji je pre svega pesnik po vokaciji, završio je kao i najbolji predstavnici naše književne reči—u inostranstvu. Izgnanstvo je večna prisutnost naše knjizevnosti, i kao po pravilu njeni predstavnici su naša najbolja pera. Tako su prisilni izgnanici bili Dučic i Rastko...

"Krugovanje" is the book which I thoroughly enjoyed. Many fine little poems. -Charles Simic PESNIČKI KRUGOVI DEJANA STOJANOVIĆA U razuđenoj slici naše savremene poezije pažljiviji čitalac može prepoznati jedan njen tok koji baštini neka izrazito refleksivna iskustva pesničke tradicije, korespondira sa našim srednjovekovljem, otvara se za njegova vizantijska sazvučja, i u kontekstu savremenog pesništva najviše se približava modernom klasicizmu. U prvom talasu našeg...

Knjigom "Ples vremena", Stojanović zaokružuje svoj tridesetogodišnji pesnički opus—u njoj su pesme iz sedamdesetih godina dvadesetog veka, kao i one napisane 2007. godine. Prepoznatljivim pesničkim i misaonim sistemom, te formama u kojima se srpska poezija prvi put ogleda, Stojanović dosledno trasira nove perspektive pevanja. -Srđan Stanišić Table of contents KNJIGA PRVA VREME PRE VREMENA, OBRISI VREMENA, SAN VREMENA, RASKRŠĆA U VREMENU 5 VREME PRE VREMENA Poezija,...

A STAR DEEP IN THE MIND I see a new star on the horizon It's not the Morning Star; It's a star without light This star without the light is the brightest Because its light stays within. The biggest star doesn't take any space It lives within, Feeds all other stars, all other matter. Without space, there is no time, Without time, there is no aging, Without aging, there is no death A star without light never dies It cannot be seen in the outer space It can only be sensed in the mind -Dejan...

ANCIENT ROMAN VILLA Here lies once splendid ancient Roman Villa in ruins. Remnants of a gorgeous mosaic (Venus and a flying dove on the floor), of big gardens, fountains and pools talk about her rich and lively history. The Roman wealthy patrician did not think of us looking at the mosaic of his Villa. He built it for posterity, yet desired to live longer than his creation. He thought he could deceive the uncompromising ruler—time. Although there was no real stock market then, he had his own...

Traganje za kompaktnijim i esencijalnijim odnosima između poetskog iskaza i slike (simbola) uslovljava nove kvalitativne i stvaralačke akcente pesmotvoračkog zahvata Dejana Stojanovića u odnosu na dosadašnji poetski opus. Odanost zaumnim jezičkim suštinama, "jezikoslovlju" i hermetičnosti značenja, svrstavaju Stojanovića u mali i autohtoni krug pesnika koji poslednjih nekoliko decenija predstavljaju osnovnu kreativnu i umetničku snagu srpske poezije.

The Sun Watches itself The second collection of Dejan Stojanovic's verse, "The Sun is Watching Itself," is covered by a metaphysical and philosophical veil. Eleven segments are connected by these two abstract approaches and by such key images as a circle, suggesting infinity, and silence, reflecting space and eternity. The circle serves as a powerful symbol and a device of the perpetual in this poetry: "the end without endlessness is only a new beginning," claims the poet....

UMETNIK I RASTVORENA STVARNOST Ako na stvaraoca, ili umetnika (pesnika), gledamo kao na nekog ko svojom emocijom i mišlju uspeva da ostvari i održava kontakt sa univerzalnim duhom, onda se nameće zaključak da snaga vizije, izraza i stvaralačkog dostignuća, jeste proporcionalna snazi nepatvorene emocije i misli (duha) u sadejstvu sa univerzalnim duhom iz kojeg crpi svoju snagu, znanje i inspiraciju. Ukoliko se usudimo da na stvaraoca (bilo koje vrste) gledamo na ovaj način, onda se...

ZNAČAJNI DOMETI KRATKE LIRSKE FORME Sasvim opravdano, može se reći da je Dejan Stojanović (1959) u svojim do sada objavljenim pesničkim knjigama uspeo da uspostavi i omeđi svoj pesnički svet. Ono što taj svet održava jeste određeni pesnički koncept, pojam koji odmah iziskuje nekoliko objašnjenja i razgraničenja. Pre svega, ako je koncept misaona, odnosno čisto misaona kategorija, postavlja se pitanje u kojoj meri se razlikuje onaj izvorni, primarni, filozofski koncept od drugih...

Prapostojbina oblika, sažetog u pesmama Dejana Stojanovića, ne počiva u osnovi istorijskog i mitskog predanja, iako se na njega posredno oslanja, ona je duboko porinuta u tamu praoblika i njegovih bezbroj alotropnih formi oslikanih u prirodnom ciklusu. Pesma je relacija između sopstvene oblikotvorne moći i naslućivanja obrisa i granica sveta—prostora i vremena, jedinstvenog i apsolutnog bića, početka i kraja sveta. -Petar V.
